Armenians Under Attack in Istanbul

A number of Armenians in Istanbul have been attacked lately. These attacks are likely racist hate crimes as one of the victims, an 85-year old woman, was found dead with a crucifix carved into her chest. Amnesty International has called on the Government of Turkey to investigate these crimes as possible racism or potentially be in violation of the European Convention on Human Rights.
